Girl Scout cookies are making the rounds

MOORE — Earlier this month, most of us promised ourselves we would watch our calories and hit the gym on a regular basis. But now it’s time to ease up on the diet and let your sweet tooth take the ride of it’s life. It’s now officially Girl Scout cookie season.

Last week, Girl Scouts all over town loaded up box after box of the coveted Girl Scout cookies and hit the streets ready to sell. Since cookie sales end March 11, it’s the only time of year to get Trefoils, a shortbread cookie; Do-si-dos, peanut butter sandwiched between oatmeal cookies; Samoas, O-shaped cookies covered in caramel and coconut, with chocolate stripes on top; Tagalongs, a cookie topped with peanut butter and wrapped in chocolate; and Thin Mints, a thin wafer covered in chocolate and flavored with natural peppermint.

The new cookie on the block this year is Savannah Smiles, a lemon cookie with powder sugar coating. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts and the cookie is named in honor of the birthplace of Girl Scouts — Savannah, Ga.

The beginning of cookie sales has sophomore Sara Kozak geared up and ready to go. Last year, Kozak sold 2,712 boxes of Girl Scout cookies earning her the spot as top cookie seller in Norman, a title she has held for three years. And Kozak hopes to double that goal by selling 6,000 boxes of cookies this year. Kozak, now armed with her driver’s license, expects her cookie selling mission will be easier now that she won’t have to wait for her mother Sherry to drive her around town to sell those tasty treats.

Kozak said that her selling strategy is going door-to-door and she has advice for other Girl Scouts out there pounding the pavement.
